“Waiting for Muse or Money” Photograph

In this case the muse is a portrait subject willing to pay for a portrait. Chiang Mai has a lot of talented artists but unfortunately for most it seems that the only way to earn from their talent is to work the markets like this or from pencil sketches of famous photographs. An old story perhaps but a large part of society has apparently decided that it doesn’t value original art very highly unless it appeals to one's ego.

Photograph taken on “Saturday Walking Street”, Chiang Mai, Thailand
